With my Diana Mini, Redscale, and with a tourist's attitude, we're going to visit the Giralda in Seville - and climb to its top! I invite you to discover a piece of Sevilla, one of the most beautiful cities in the south of Spain!
The Giralda is the bell tower of Santa Maria Cathedral in Seville, Andalucia, Spain. Part of the tower was built during the twelfth century, but its top is part of the Christian era. At 97.5 meters high, it was the tallest tower in Spain for centuries and is currently the tallest in the city but is also one of the most visited monuments in the country.
To learn more about its history and architectural style, I invite you to visit its Wikipedia page
You can visit it and in the guided tour, you can visit the cathedral and the tower. However, it’s important to see it surroundings, full of horse carriages and gypsies trying to fake tourists in several ways, take care!
But it’s also important and you can’t miss the climb to the tower (get some air because you’ll need it), but once you reach the top, the view is breathtaking, a view of the city extends on all sides, so you can know how disorganized the layout of the city is. If you visit Seville, the Giralda Tower is a monument that you must visit! As you can see, the pictures from the top are amazing!
